I was hesitant to introduce teleporting in this manner, but in the end I felt that it worked. There are reasons for its existence and the form it takes, all of them well thought through. Hopefully everyone will feel that way once I get around to explaining a little more. :)

Your caution on spending too much time on the details is received and understood. It's one of the things I've struggled with for everything I've worked on... I do get too detail obsessed, and I'm trying to overcome that while working on this project. But yes, there will be plenty of rooftop engagements, otherwise I wouldn't be spending quite so much time there. I'm not only focusing on decorating the environment, but on using those decorations as cover from specific lines-of-sight. Next time I'll try to focus on explaining some of that reasoning a little more. :)

Appreciate the feedback.
